Learning to Honor and Share In Life’s Truths

Grief is a normal and natural response to loss. It is originally an unlearned feeling process. Keeping grief inside increases your pain.

A friend of mine passed away recently and I will be attending his funeral in a few days.  Not something I want to do.  When I received the text that he had passed, my first reaction was to look out the window at the sky, as if I thought that, that is where he is now, somewhere “up” there with his Creator.   Later, when I received the information about his funeral, I thought going would only make me really sad.  But now I think that maybe I don’t want to go to the funeral because that would make his death really real.  If I believe he has gone back to his Creator I could use my belief to sooth my soul.  Death is, I believe, Life’s Ultimate Truth.  I will attend the funeral and share this loss that his family and other friends are also experiencing.  Especially his family.
